The Bronzo Family
This package includes all 9 Bronzo weights, from Thin to Black.
Bronzo appears to always move forward, but also remain still, via an ingenious construction: a center stroke that only ever sticks out on the left, A tense curve that only ever happens on the right, and a width that sits uncomfortably between square and rectangle.
Bronzo, originally designed by Rick Valicenti and Mouli Marur for Gilbert Paper’s ESSE in 1990, was one of the rare global successes in the 1990s’ typographic cacophony. This reboot, redesign, and re-engineering of Bronzo sees the family fully redrawn, introduces 587 new glyphs, a totally redesigned system of accents, 6 new weights, and the ability to speak about 80 languages it couldn’t before.
